Microsoft updates Cortana for Android with improved notifications settings

Microsoft has updated its Cortana app on Android with a few minor improvements that should make life a bit easier with the digital assistant on devices running Google's operating system.

The release notes for the new update, listed as version 2.1.7.1578-enus-release on Google Play, mention three tweaks to improve the app:

  • Edit your favorite places in settings
  • Control your notification settings
  • Fixed accidental opt-out issue

Curiously, Google Play on some Android devices is actually showing the release notes for version 2.0.2, which was released in December, even when upgrading from 2.1.6 to 2.1.7:

We're not the only ones to have experienced that quirky issue, despite the listing correctly showing 2.1.7 as the "current version" of the app - our friends over at The Digital Lifestyle also spotted the old release notes on Google Play.

The latest update comes after Microsoft discontinued support for its Band 2 in Cortana for Android with version 2.1.5 last month.
